Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, Taranna

Meet Australia’s iconic devils at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, an innovative wildlife park set up to protect this endangered creature and educate the public about the importance of environmental conservation. The park’s main attraction is the devil, but you can also see other native animals, such as quolls and pademelons. Special presentations about the efforts to save Australia’s endangered animals are held in conjunction with daily feedings, during which visitors can approach the park’s friendly kangaroos and birds. You can also go on leisurely nature walks through the park’s botanic garden, which abounds with diverse plant and animal life. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop, where every ticket and souvenir sold makes a little difference in the vital efforts to save the devils.

  • Really enjoyed this zoo. It was offered as an excursion from the HAL cruise we were on. The setting is much more natural and the animals are observed in a less confined or zoo-like environment. The De...  more »
  • A really fun experience to meet the Tasmanian Devil and feed kangaroos (unfortunately no koalas here). Do check out their schedule as there are many events such as Tasmanian Devil feeding, kangaroo feedings (man, they provide so much food to feed kangaroos! A really fun experience)
  • This place was great! Devils roaming around, Kangaroo feeding (you get to do it) and get to see a Devil feasting on some meat. Birds and other creatures are around too. Overall it's fun and peaceful with all the greenery. Good price too, don't know what the other reviewer was on about! Definitely visit this place if you're on the way to Port Arthur (it's 10-15 minutes apart) - just be sure to coordinate your visit for the feeding times. Enjoy
  • Fantastic place. Interesting concept. Very close view of devil's eating. And a fun bird show.
  • Brilliant interactive experience. Animals all look really well and happy. Good staff. Brilliant for kids to get close up to things
  • This was even better than seeing Tasmanian Devils in the wild. They're in an open area with just a short glass fence so you can get right up next to them. There are presentations given during the day where they're fed; so you get to see them interact with each other--chasing each other and grappling over the food just as they do in the wild. This alone would be worth a visit, but there's also presentations with quolls (fascinating to see) and local birds, and times where you can feed the kangaroos, wallabies, and pademelons. There's a small aviary to view more local birds, a possum viewing area, and a lovely nature walk to a viewing area over the water. We had a terrific day here and I can't imagine a better way to get to know Tasmania's wildlife.
